Re: c-section w/ second child mommies...question
I only had someone around for a week or less, and it was no problem. In fact, I think I would have been fine from day one. I just made sure not to lay around too much OR to overdo it. I also did not take any pain meds after coming home, because it enabled me to listen to my body.
That was years ago after DS and DD1 was 2 1/2.
